like this one. president obama going up to new york for the united nations but yesterday he sat down with the women on the view but held zero one on one meetings with foreign dignitaries. was that a case of the right priorities for the president's schedule or was it a big mistake? we all tackle that and a whole lot more here on the full court press. first, let's start out with the current news update from lisa ferguson out in los angeles. hi lisa. good morning. >> hey bill, good morning everyone. mitt romney joins paul ryan on a bus tour through ohio as part of an effort to refocus his campaign message. ryan kicked off a three-day tour with an event in lima and they'll campaign together in central ohio. romney wraps it up tuesday with an event in cleveland. ohio is perhaps the most critical swing state with 18 electoral votes. romney losing ohio would mean he has no shot at the white house. that does follow suit with history. no republican candidate has ever become president without carrying ohio. recent poll

: as world leaders descend upon the united nations this week for the annual meeting of the assembly plenty of voices will be heard, including the president of iran. while the topics will cover a brood spectrum the focus will be on the continuing violence in the middle east and now africa. using a perceived attack on the koran by a private voice as a pretext to incite anger, usually causing damage of some sort and in the most recent incident leading to a tragic and devastating loss of life. one of the tough questions that follows is how should we respond? we should be clear understanding that these attacks are the price we pay for believing in free speech. we are used to dismissing as cranks and crazies, those two feel compelled to elevate their own views by speaking in venomous terms about others. yet in parts of the world where free speech has not become part of the social fabric, free speech can be used to incite. it is often the intent of those causing the riot the tough restrictions on speech be imposed, the very violence they cause being the argument they can use
minister netanyahu of israel had a very important serious talk at the united nations. no question about that. we also found a funny moment. >> this is a bomb, this is a fuse. >> when we come back, also serious and funny a man walking around with a fake r.p.g. how did it turn out for him? >> after nearly eight minutes we finally attracted a few concerned citizens and retreated back to the nearby neighborhood. now we just had to wait for law enforcement to arrive. you know who is coming on to me now? you know the kind of guys that do reverse mortgage commercials? those types are coming on to me all the time now.

an assault on america. they are also an assault on the very ideals upon which the united nations was founded. the notion that people can resolve their differences peacefully, diplomacy can take the place of war that an interdependent world, all of us have a stake in working towards greater opportunity and security for our citizens. >> i think that's a nice way of doing it. now, here's the part i really enjoyed. i've been advocating for a long time listen, we cannot bend on freedom of speech, obviously right? so when they attack our embassies because of the innocence of muslims movie, you can denounce the movie but this is our culture, we stand by it. >> i know there are some who ask why don't we ban such a video? our constitution protects the right to practice free speech. here in the united states, downsless publications provoke offense. like me, the majority of americans are christian and we do not ban blasphemy to our most sacred beliefs. >> we tell the world we are not apologizing. it's also true. i'm sure he does believe it, obviously so and i'm glad he said it forcefully. on to the two

citizens united has made the united states a nation of corporations essentially and not people. >> well, citizens united transformed our politics in the same way that bush versus gore took the last decade from us in essence by deciding the election for that one lucky guy won the election because of the court's intervention. citizens united is really an effort to remake all of american politics in the image of large corporate wealth and large corporate power. we had essentially a wall of separation between corporate treasury wealth and public elections for many decades and the supreme court had said as far back as chief justice john marshall in the dartmouth as recently as chief justice rehnquist and other conservative justices like justice white that a corporation is not a person armed with political rights but it is an artificial entity that's an instrumentality of the state that's used for purposes of accumulating wealth, investing wealth and it does a great job at that. but we should never allow the corporations

ambassador of the united nations and secretary of energy. these are who the crop of candidates that president obama beat. >> i think if gary johnson had been allowed in those debates it would have been much more interesting. >> it would have been interesting to see what ron paul's philosophy looks like without crazy. >> you. >> and not to say that i don't think that the philosophy is crazy, but the presentation of the philosophy. >> half of it is very sane. half of it is beyond the democrats. i think that ron paul is one of the few people in congress to stand up and say that the iraq war was unconstitutional. it was. >> libertarianism is like the hold out spot for people who want to think that they're better than the democrats and conservatives. i'd like at this point, first of all, you're never going to elect a libertarian. second of all there's far more room to negotiate and soften your position in economics on the left than social issues on the right. >> yeah. >> anybody who is a libertarian in the republican party is not doing anything to help their philosophies. >> i agree. you don't see

is the most powerful number in the nation. five votes on the supreme court can pick a president recall bush v. gore. redefine our constitutional rights, think citizens united, and determine the constitutionality of a statute. think of the healthcare act of last june. maybe this is good news because the court over the past few years has proven to be the last refuges of decision making as congress and executive branches have proven themselves too often mired in gridlock and avoidance behavior that typify so many institutions. on the other hand the old mythology that the supreme court can depend upon a neutral analyst of legal principles to resolve these tough issues is more and more suspect. the court itself has been mired in ideological and partisan bickering. witness the acid tone of the four conservative justices in their dissent in the healthcare case. this partisanship and what i view to be the intellectual gamesmanship of those who erect false interpretive facades to justify the outcome oriented reasoning, detracts from the historic role of our final and most august deliberative body. the

president obama's supposedly dissing the prime minister of israel. not talking with the united nations but going on a talk show. he has to take the camera and lights off of him for being so petty as mark said. >> jennifer: looking presidential. >> try to do that. he's having trouble. >> jennifer: all right. so i'm going to flip it over to you because we asked you to put some questions on the table that you think the obama team would be dreading. and the first one that you said is wall street has done very well in the past four years. main street hasn't. is that because your economic team is led by timothy geithner. should obama get this question, how should he respond? >> there is a lot of questions about who has come in with obama to try to reform wall street and prevent this from happening again. tim geithner was on wall street. he was part of the federal government, federal reserve. he came from wall street. >> jennifer: are you answering as donnie now? >> i'm setting up why that's a problem for the president
solve the problem? and so far most senior national intelligence officials in the united states and former officials say no. the cure would be worse than the problem. it would make the situation worse. it would start a third war in the middle east. the consequences could be catastrophic for the region, for the global economy and it might actually accelerate the iranian program, not stop it. >> eliot: does that mean we have passed the point of no return because we've made a decision that the military action will not succeed and therefore if they would make the decision they want the bomb, what do we do? >> you better be darn sure these guys are making a bomb before you go to the military solution. you don't do it on a hunch or sketchy intelligence. you know, you have to be sure that they are going and that, therefore, it is worth starting a third regional war that would make iraq and afghanistan look like a warm-up act. >> eliot: other than military action, sanctions are the primary vehicle we're using primary mecha
